It was all about finally going after my law degree and becoming a corporate or tax lawyer. Public Interest law was to be part of my avocations. Things got a little tangled. Because of personal calamities and complications, I began learning about public health care, disabilities, support services for those with disabilities, and more -- plus losing my seat in law school. Never mind about that (for now).There's some compelling stuff impacting the consuming public.
Learning about domestic abuse caused more detours on the way to the J.D. and put me in the world of recruiting. It also put me back into writing and informing, coaching and empowering. Additional challenges put me back into learning about the seamier side of the health care picture.
It's time to start writing about what I've seen and learned. Having proved my health journalism worth with a project for KRON and having done an amazing job with producing a radio legal news program in the Bay Area for two years, plus the grounding gained from doing publicity for South Pasadena's Chamber of Commerce and Business and Professional Women's Organization, it seems appropriate to gather these threads and make a more organized and purposeful statement about our health care system. It's time to find my voice and do something meaningful to shed light on the many problems.
I'd like to think of myself as the one who empowers others because of the better understanding I create with my words.
